    Praying for your guys and that you’ll have plenty of strength to take care of all of them! Love the prize pack today! 🙂 You and Lacie are rocking this thing out! Great job!

  2. Donna Pyle

    I agree with Jess – y’all are doing an incredible job! Go, go, go!

  3. Mary Preston

    I am hoping that your family are all well very soon.

    Thank you very much for my win. I’m just thrilled.

    History was always my favorite subject at school. I had great teachers and it is something that my parents are interested in as well.

    The books today look fantastic.

    I have always thought that it would have been incredible to see the Berlin Wall coming down. It’s a world changing event that has always interested me.


  4. Cheri

    I would time travel to the 1787 Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia.
    Thanks for the contest. Historical fiction has my heart.

  5. Boo for strep! Hope everybody feels better soon!

  6. I hope you stay healthy, and your boys and husband heal quick. I’d love to travel to the Victorian Era in London, England.

  7. I hope they all feel better soon. YOU do not need to get sick too!

    Morning, Jenny! Hope Hagan and Liam get better (and Brian too). Praying you don’t get sick! Lysol needs to be your best friend! If I could time travel I would go back to the farm in Cusseta when my Daddy was a little boy, He often talked about those times and so many times I heard him, but did not really listen if you know what I mean. He is in heaven now and I miss him and would just love to experience that time with him when he was a little boy. Such a different world then.

  9. So sorry your fellows are sick, Jenny. I pray you stay well.

    I’m glad your Bash is doing so well. What fun it is!

    (Please don’t enter me in the drawing. I have all four of the books.)

  10. Lori Dilworth

    I don’t know why, but the medieval time period has always fascinated me. I think it is the romanticized version of that time period that I want to visit though, not the actual time period!

    Hope all 3 of your boys are feeling better soon and that momma can avoid being sick! Prayers for the Hale family!

  11. Praying for you to stay healthy! Strep is not fun.

    My personal favorite time period is the Industrial Revolution. That time period fascinates me–the world was pushing forward in inventions, but falling back in the personal livlihoods of people and workers. It’s fascinating, which is why a lot of my books are in time periods similar to the Industrial Revolution. However, I don’t know if I’d actually want to go there for an extended period of time. In that case, I’d rather go to medieval times–particularly the time of Robin Hood. ;-D

    Love this contest!

    Hi Jennifer,
    Fun Day 2 for us – bummer for you with your sick boys!!!! Praying for sustained health for you and quick recoveries for your boys.

    I’m a medieval girl ALL. THE. WAY. I’d love to go back to England in the late 1200s during the rule of Edward the 1st. I know we can’t possibly understand every aspect of life back then, but I grew up in a third world country where modern commodities were hard to come by and I currently live on a farm… I think I could handle it for a while at least!

    Would love to win these books – lovely women, each one of these authors.

    Okay. Now I’m going to post as a writer. I posted the same thing over at Lacie’s blog so this is a duplicate message….

    I have to be honest. As a writer, I’ve been debating contributing because this just feels so weird to me. Not sure why – I guess maybe because it’s one thing to send out queries to specific and intentional people (ie: agents, editors, etc.), it’s another thing altogether to just put it out there in the universe. BUT, that being said, here’s to bold and daring…

    Juliette and the Monday Man-Dates
    ~(Book 1 in The Gustafson Girls Series)
    Inspirational Contemporary Romance
    Complete at 117,000 words

    Hook: Sometimes driving blind is the only way to find what you’re looking for.

    Min-Syn: When Paul and Simone Gustafson are killed by a drunk driver, the lives of their four daughters change forever. Although raised by loving grandparents, it is the G-4S – the Gustafson Four Society – that holds them together when their differences would tear them apart.
    All grown up now, they are still a force with which to be reckoned as they get together to love, and support, and, if necessary, to intervene.

    Juliette Gustafson is heart-broken after waiting nearly ten years for a proposal that never came. Determining she isn’t “getting over Mike” quickly enough, her three younger sisters come up with The Monday Man-Dates; an intervention plan requiring Juliette to endure a series of remarkably disastrous blind dates. Then Juliette meets the ONE MAN who can right the wrongs in her past and change her future, but will she let herself fall in love with HIM?

    I would LOVE to win a critique – that would be AWESOME!!!!

    Blessings and continued prayers,

  14. Marissa E.

    I’ll pray that your family gets better!! And that you don’t get sick. 🙂

    I’d love to travel to the late 1800’s. I’ve read books about the Gilded Age and all the balls and debutantes seem so fun!

  15. I would LOVE to go back to 1964 and tell my mother to hang on and stay strong, because true love was on the way.

  16. Molly Frederick

    I am so sorry your family is sick and hope they will be better soon!! I would like to travel back in time to the era of wonderful “Gone With the Wind” period. I just think this would have been so interesting!!! Thanks for the contest and the chance to win!! I would love to have all four books!!!

  17. Emily

    I’m difinitely a WW2 girl! I so wish I was born back then….sometimes I think I should’ve been. With all the distractions in the world today, there’s something appealing about the simplicity of that time. That and the unity that the war caused here in America…you don’t see that these days!


  18. Debbie

    If I could I’d go back to Bible times, just for a little bit. I’d like to see what it was like to live then, get a little more insight on the stories we read in the Bible.


  19. John

    If I could go back in time I think I would like to travel with the first missionaries out west. The story of Marcus Whitman has always proved powerful to me…and sad.

  20. Linda McFarland

    I would have loved to lived in the horse and buggy days…sounds soo thrilling…. life so much slower than……

  21. Dawn Kelley

    Prayers to restored health in your household!
    I would love to have lived: 1) contemporary to Laura Ingalls Wilder–I’ve read many books about her life, and loved her books as a child. I have always been intrigued and inspired by the pioneer days. 2) during the WWII era because of the staunch patriotism, core family values, and simplicity of life; I enjoy canning with my mother-in-law, and she is also teaching me to sew. I hope to pass on these traditions to my three children. : )

  22. Pam K.

    If I could time travel, I think I’d like to visit the 1920’s just because it was such a time of change in women’s fashions. They finally got rid of the corset and hemlines were shorter. It would be fun to visit just for a short time.
    All these books you are giving away look great. I’ve read Keli’s book but not the others yet so it would be fun to win.Thanks for all these great giveaways.
    I hope all your guys will be feeling better soon and that you avoid being sick.

  23. I shared on Facebook. I’m trying to figure out how to sign up for your blog thru my phone but can’t seem to find the connection. I’m sure hoping I’m the lucky winner!

  24. Jenny

    I would time travel to the 1930s or 40s. That’s my absolute favorite period to read about, so being able to see exactly what it was like would be amazing. And I certainly wouldn’t mind sporting the fashions of that era!
